Safety Measures In Industry

Dear All,

I would like to share small information about Industrial safety measures ....

Please see the below information....

Safety measures:

Safety measures are activities and precautions taken to improve safety, i.e. reduce risk related to human health. Common safety measures include:

* Root cause analysis to identify causes of a system failure and correct deficiencies.

* Visual examination for dangerous situations such as emergency exits blocked because they are being used as storage areas.

* Visual examination for flaws such as cracks, peeling, loose connections.

* Chemical analysis

* X-ray analysis to see inside a sealed object such as a weld, a cement wall or an airplane outer skin.

* Destructive testing of samples

* Stress testing subjects a person or product to stresses in excess of those the person or product is designed to handle, to determining the "breaking point".

* Safety margins/Safety factors. For instance, a product rated to never be required to handle more than 200 pounds might be designed to fail under at least 400 pounds, a safety factor of two. Higher numbers are used in more sensitive applications such as medical or transit safety.

* Implementation of standard protocols and procedures so that activities are conducted in a known way.

* Training of employees, vendors, product users

* Instruction manuals explaining how to use a product or perform an activity

* Instructional videos demonstrating proper use of products

* Examination of activities by specialists to minimize physical stress or increase productivity

* Government regulation so suppliers know what standards their product is expected to meet.

* Industry regulation so suppliers know what level of quality is expected. Industry regulation is often imposed to avoid potential government regulation.

* Self-imposed regulation of various types.

* Statements of Ethics by industry organizations or an individual company so its employees know what is expected of them.

* Drug testing of employees, etc.

* Physical examinations to determine whether a person has a physical condition that would create a problem.

* Periodic evaluations of employees, departments, etc.

* Geological surveys to determine whether land or water sources are polluted, how firm the ground is at a potential building site, etc.

*ISO 18001:2007 OHSAS

OHSAS 18001 is an internationally recognized standard and is recognized as the benchmark for Health & Safety Management Systems certification.

It promotes a safe and healthy working environment by providing a framework that allows your organization to consistently identify and control its health and safety risks, reduce the potential for accidents, aid legislative compliance and improve overall performance. The standard has been updated to EN BS OHSAS 18001:2007 to parallel ISO 14001 and ISO 9000 for more consistency and to enable easier integration of environment, quality and health and safety management systems into one.

Benefits of Certification to OHSAS 18001 include;

* Potential reduction in the number of accidents

* Proof of legal and regulatory compliance

* Shows your commitment to health and safety

* Better management of health and safety risks

* Potential reduced public liability insurance costs
